God, this is just SO KANYE.
Over the weekend, Kanye tweeted the following:
I will teach a course at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) 10 September 2018
And, of course, people were very excited.

However, in a statement to BuzzFeed News on Monday, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago said there's no plan to have Kanye teach at the school.
In an official statement, they said: "We're flattered that Mr. West would have an interest in teaching emerging artists and designers at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, however, Mr. West is not currently teaching at SAIC, and at this time, there are no plans for him to do so."
